hi there...my father in law was diagnosed with lung cancer a month ago and has been in hospital for the last 2 weeks wi,firstly to have his lung drained and now with an infection...they won't start chemo until the infection is cleared. I wondered if anyone had any experience in this area..the infection is from where he had his lung drained apparently so any similar sotries would be welcome. He is also hallucinating quite a lot and talking about stuff that makes no sense. We have been told that this could be the infection but it is very worrying to see him like this. is it the morphine? the infection? the cancer?
I have been looking for similar situations and eventually thought it easier to ask the question .
